Submissions are now open for Ignite Chanukah 2012! Have you been itching to talk to over 200 young adult Jews about your passion? Here is your chance. Talk about something Jewish or put a Jew-ish twist on a topic you’re interested in. Not sure what to talk about? Why not contribute to our regular topics: sex, drugs, and rock n roll.
Never heard of Ignite? Not sure if this is for you? What is an Ignite spark? A spark is a 5 minute presentation about just about anything you want, accompanied by 20 powerpoint slides that automatically advance every 15 seconds while you’re talking.
Not so scary, right? Trust us, this is a chance to have a lot of fun with some great people while talking about something you truly love. Submit your idea here and tell us about your passion.
Also, if you want to purchase tickets for this year’s Ignite, they are now available here!

Submissions are submitted, and we’re ready to hear from YOU about what your favourite topics are! This year’s Ignite Chanukah is being community sourced – which means that you submitted the topics, and you’ll pick your favourites to hear speak. So if you plan on attending this year’s most fantabulous young adult Chanukah party, speak up! We have submissions about everything from circumcision to yoga, jews in roller derby to kosher chicken slaughter. Vote for your favourites and hear them all this December 14!
Not sure if speaking at Ignite Chanukah is right for you? It is, we promise! Sparks are 5 minute long presentations about anything you darn well please, accompanied by 20 powerpoint slides that will automatically advance one at a time, every 15 seconds during your speech. Can you keep up? Can the audience?? Finding out is half the fun! (The other half is learning cool new things from cool new people.)
Sound like a thing you can do? Of course it does! Submit your idea here, and tell Ignite Chanukah about your passion!
We’re back, my little matzo balls! Ignite Chanukah is gearing up for another fantastic festival of light this winter. We will be opening up for community submissions on November 1st, so get thinking! We’ll be back on December 14 at Rembrandt Yard for another evening of latkes, laughter, and racing to keep up with our spark presentations.
